why I can't start centos 7.6 sometimes

Hi,

I make centos 7.6 usb-disk, via which CentOS 7.6 is installed. But sometimes CentOS 7.6 can't start correctly, and stopped with the following message:

led to map dmar1
[ 1.881791] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: disp: conn 01:0130: func 00 lookup failed,

What's the problem with CentOS?

Thanks!

safety vulnerability in tablet computer

We discovered safety hardware vulnerability in Samsung tablet computer model SM-T580 16GB SN: R52M20EG5WR – dangerous overheat of the tablet lithium-ion battery caused by short circuit to flash LED, which caused more likely by failed LED controlling hardware. We believe that similar design have other mobile computerized devices utilizing flash LED for digital camera. The computer in question has been in use for only three weeks. The temperature outside of the case was approximately 55C in open space. The LED was shining while the computer was power down.

Diskless Centos & Cgroup config changes

Hi,

I have OS 'image' that boots via PXE and mounts over NFS. (7.5.1804). I am
wanting to explore allowing cgroup usage on this configuration.

The root image is exported read-only over NFS and am using statetab & rwtab
to allow some persistent parts of the filesystem as well as read/write
where needed.

I have tried setting /sys in the statetab and this causes the machine to
fail, as I have tried /sys in the rwtab. The latter increases the boot time
to a point which is not usable.

Updateinfo file is not valid XML

Hi,

Since last night, all my servers spew out the following error when
trying to run an update, either via yum-cron or manually:

# yum check-update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
Determining fastest mirrors
...
194 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
Updateinfo file is not valid XML: <open file
'/var/cache/yum/x86_64/7/epel/92f2e15cad66d79ea1ad327e2af7af89d98e4d153d7a3e27ff41946f476af5b4-updateinfo.xml.zck',

upgrade to kernel 4.19.43 fail.

Hi all...

I just upgraded to laatest kernel in experimental from 4.19.40 ,
and for my OpenCL app this now fails with this msg:

amdgpu_device_initialize: DRM version is 2.50.0 but this driver is only compatible with 3.x.x.

Booting back to 4.19.40 makes it work again.

I have added a few files from amdgpu-pro package, to make openCL work
here in centos7; but something must have changed in this new kernel for
amdgpu support.

As kernel 4.19.40 works fine, it is not a big issue here - just wanted
to report it.

how to change all hardware and system-IDs

UEFI boot manager sequence problems HP Envy

Morning all,

I have a HP Envy dual boot system (Win8 for serious stuff, i.e. Train Sim and Flight Sim) and Centos 7 for everything else.

In the past I've had the occasional problem where an update on the windows side has updated the UEFI boot sequence but using efibootmgr has always fixed it.

On Friday I discovered that my HDD was failing so I tried using Clonezilla to move it on to a new SSD of the same size. Unfortunately the clone didn't work, failing half way through my main partition.

Older versions of samba that work with CentOS 7?

Hi.

Are there any places I can download older versions of Samba working with CentOS 7?

Reason:

I have been upgrading all of my servers from 6.X to 7.X.
This alone is a massive task for me as I am a one man band.

Samba made massive changes not allowing NT style domains anymore in the 4.10 branch.

If I can find older samba RPM's for CentOS 7 than I can finish all upgrades of the OS, then later upgrade samba once I am finished when I have more time.

Any ideas anyone?

thanks

Bash completion thrown by quoted option args?

There was a thread about C7 bash completion back in August last year, but it doesn't have answers for this problem.

Example: "yum install /path/to/local/package" works fine with tab completion to fill in the path and package bits.

However, "yum --debuglevel="1" install ..." just gets stuck and doesn't offer anything. The only option is to type everything out, or type enough to use a wildcard. After more testing, I found that any option argument that is quoted breaks completion. Which in turn makes me think this is not even specific to yum but bash completion in general.

Bug?

CRI-O rpm not published to public repo hence not signed

Hi Lokesh,

If i'm not mistaken i guess you are still building/ maintaining the CRI-O
rpms ?
If so could you please let me know where is the CI job which builds the
rpms [1] which are tagged into [2] ?

The reason i'm bringing this up is because folks in K8s community are using
the cri-o rpms published to [3] and that should have never happened.

Now with Fabian (@arrfab) help we manage to track down that there was no
request being made by you(or the SIG chair under which the cri-o falls
into) to sign and publish the rpm to mirror.centos.org and that backs the
issue folks raised [3].

snmp walk not working in FIPS compliant algorithms

Hi,

When we attempt to do SNMP walk v3 in CentOS7 when its FIPS enabled, we get the below error:

aes_misc.c(74): OpenSSL internal error, assertion failed: Low level API call to cipher AES forbidden in FIPS mode!

FIPS support SHA and AES. This error is coming internally and it needs changes from rpm level. When we try the same scenario in RHEL 6 servers, we don't get this error and we get output successfully.

The SNMP rpm we use is
net-snmp-5.7.2-28.el7.x86_64

Please let us know how we can resolve this error? Any patch is available for this or not.

system unresponsive

Ok, we used to get this occasionally on cluster nodes, and we just got it
on a fileserver (very bad). The system is discovered to be unresponsive:
it doesn't ping, and plugging a console in, you can see that it's not
dead, but there nothing at all on the screen, nor does it respond to even
<ctrl-alt-del>. The only answer is to power cycle it; it comes up fine.

Nothing in /var/log/dmesg or /var/log/messages. No abrts I can find. sar
tells me it went unredponsive between 18:10 and 10:20 yesterday.

Bypassing 'A stop job is running' when rebooting CentOS 7

I'm currently trying to reboot a CentOS 7.5 workstation (to complete an
upgrade to 7.6), but it is 'stuck' while shutting down with 'A stop job
is running for ...' - the counter initially gave a limit of '1min 30s' -
but each time it reaches that limit, it just adds on ~90 seconds to the
limit ...

Currently the limit is '25min 33s'

I'm in no hurry to have this workstation operational, but I guess at
some point I will have to power cycle it ...

Does anyone know how to bypass this?

bad install

I tried to install Centos on a partition of a Windows machine, and I
screwed up. Thinking that the installation would take a while, I took a
short break. When I

came back, the install was "done" but it is now asking for a password
that I never gave it. I can't get around this. I tried to reinstall from
the DVD I downloaded,

but it just comes up "password" instead of letting the DVD mount. I
tried to reformat the partition (sda6) using gparted, but the section
that contains the

problem does not reformat, it remains there.

Rhel8 guest and window resizing (possible OT)

I have installed a redhat 8 server in a KVM/Qemu VM guest to prepare for
CentOS 8.  The host is running Ubuntu 18.04.  Window resizing does not
work at all (it works in ubuntu and windows guests).  Is this a problem
with incompatible versions of spice or is there something else besides
the spice daemon that I should be looking at.  Does this work correctly
under CentOS 6 & 7 Host?

Display device is set as follows (same as ubuntu guest)

Type: spice server

listen type: address

Address: localhost only

port: auto (5900)

TLS port: auto

Opera browser on CentOS

Is anyone running the Opera browser on Centos 7 or 6? While not available in a yum-repository, it seems to be available as a snap-package. Not familiar with those yet but curious if the browser is worthwhile to run. I have generally found Firefox less useful/compatible than Chromium but would also like alternatives, particularly since Opera defaults to a VPN-connection.

CentOS 6/EPel: Missing EPel package?

The EPel repo has a *nearly* complete collection of QT5 packages. One
important one that *seems* to be missing: qmake.

There does not seem to be a package containing qmake in the collection of QT5
packages for CentOS 6!

I guess I can find the source code and build it (somehow)...

bash off topic

I have a simple bash script it will take arguments from a file that has
quotes.

my file arg.txt would be this
-lt "*.txt"

my script file would be
LS_ARG=`cat arg.txt`
ls $LS_ARG

it does not run properly:
sh -x ./arg.sh
++ cat arg.txt
+ LS_ARG='-lt "*.txt"'
+ ls -lt '"*.txt"'
ls: cannot access "*.txt": No such file or directory

How do I resolve that ? If the quotes are not in my file it all works
fine. I think its because it looks like the extra single quotes it puts
around the "*.txt" - or - '"*.txt"' - how do I do this ?

centos 7 gnome-terminal login-shell

Hi !

I wonder, that i got a login shell, if i start the gnome-terminal on my Gnome-Desktop,
recognizing the sourcing of all files in /etc/profile.d/ ..

Can somebody give me an hint, where it's system-wide configured or it's a
bug and it isn't configurable ?

(it's not configured as login-shell in Preferences and the checkbox ;-) )

For Ubuntu18.04 it's not the default, but the Checkbox for login-shell works there like a charme ...

SCL packages in CentOS 7 that are expired and EOL

Hi all

I just had a glance at the various repos installed by centos-release-scl
on CentOS 7 and a large number of the packages available in the CentOS
version of this repo are both old and out of date and more importantly,
EOL. They should be removed from our repos ASAP.

I know we had/have a policy of cleaning these repos up at point release
times but it's quite apparent that we have missed all of these for a
number of point releases from 7.3 onwards. Thus I propose we make an
exception for these and remove them anyway, regardless of point release
time or not.

Hi folks. Just wondering how I can implement an automatic .bash_profile for root. I have to load my user .bash_profile every time I get into root, and I would like a better solution. There is no /home/ for root, so I’m a bit confused if this is even allowed.

Any insight appreciated.

JavaFX on C7 ?

Hi all!

I'm getting:

Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application

for a certain Java app.

I'm hoping someone can tell me what bits and pieces I need to install
(and maybe where to find them) so I can satisfy that app's appetite
without screwing up my system.

Thanks in advance!

Fred

PS:

I see openjfx at openjfx.io. I assume that if this version is appropriate
for C7, that I need the one containing the jmods, not the SDK?

Again, clues will be much appreciated!

Preliminary RHEL 8 review

I've noticed a few things that may help other people setting up test

1) The RPMs on the installation media are split into two distinct

This means that if you try, like me, to mount a DVD image and use it
as local yum repo for testing out kickstart setups and mock builds,
you need to address the multiple necessary repositories with the new
names.

2) For Virtualbox, it absolutely needs more than 1 GB of RAM.With only

CentOS 8.0.1905 build status

Hi,

As everybody is probably aware now, RHEL 8.0 was released earlier this
week .

Instead of publishing multiple blog posts here and then point to updated
content, we decided this time to have a dedicated wiki page that can be
used to track our current status : <a href="https://wiki.centos.org/About/Building_8" title="https://wiki.centos.org/About/Building_8">https://wiki.centos.org/About/Building_8</a>

So now you can look at that page while we're busy on those tasks, and
refresh from time to time.

Let's spread the news about the wiki page and point people (on

kickstart compat C7 -> C8

Hi all,

I still use the following kickstart partition scheme for C7 installations (via virt-install):
Briefly, fixed size for /root and /boot, and the rest is filled up for /srv.

The same kickstart (despite that c7 uses vda, f29 uses sda) doesn't work with Fedora29 (EL8).
I get a "device is too small for new format" error.

Firefox esr repackage

Hi everyone, I use firefox on centos 7 at work but due to the fairly well know extension signing problem, I cannot use ublock origin.

From what I can tell, the latest version of firefox in the updates repository is 60.6.1-1.el7.
It looks like Mozilla have just released firefox esr 60.6.2 which should fix the signing issue.
(see <a href="https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/60.6.2/releasenotes/" title="https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/60.6.2/releasenotes/">https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/60.6.2/releasenotes/</a>)

Would it be possible for someone to pass this message on to someone who can package this, so that users like me can update?

Issues trying to change the selinux context

We're forced to use Siteminder, by CA, who have no clue what they're doing
in *nix. No packages, tarballs...

Anyway, I'm trying clean up some stuff, and in /*/smwa/webagent/bin (all
their binaries, including .so's, are in there, duh...

Re-install workstation - best repo's

I'm going to rebuild my workstation because maintaining it is now a nightmare after using "recommended" repo's that now conflict with each other. Every time I do a yum update I it fails with conflicts.

I'm looking for new recommendations for which repo's to use to have a stable Centos 7 workstation. Much like Centos itself, most of the web pages are very old now.

I'm looking for a KDE workstation with mp3 support and video editing.

youtube-dl No module named 'pkg_resources'

youtube-dl doesn't work for me after a recent update.
I do not use it often, so do not know whether the update matters.
It gives the error message:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/youtube-dl", line 6, in <module>
from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'

I've tried reinstalling python-setuptools,
installing python34-setuptools and reinstalling youtube-dl .

I'm aware there is a bugzilla on it.
That and stackoverflow are where I got the ideas above.

How do I make youtube-dl work on Centos 7?

Slow performance with NFSv4.1 on CentOS 7.5 ?

We have a number of identical NFS clients mounting a server using
NFSv4.1 - server and clients are all running CentOS 7.5 (kernel
3.10.0-862.14.4.el7.x86_64)

However, on some clients, the NFS performance 'degrades' with time ...

Running a simple test - a python script that just imports a module
(python and its modules are installed on the NFS share) can be an order
of magnitude or more slower on some clients. i.e.

What happened if install a el7 package on a el6 system

Hi,

Recently, I encountered a interesting phenomenon that CentOS 6.3
running as normal even if I (my colleague, actually) installed a
kernel that build for CentOS 7.x (e.g. kernel-3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64.rpm).

I found kernel is mismatch accidentally when I using "uname -r" to
check kernel version. So my question is what the harmness we will
get if I install a el7 rpm into a el6 system?

Thanks.
